Barbara Morris Benn, age 60, of Edina, passed away July 31, 2017. A professional pianist, she was also an exceptional chef, composer, outdoors- woman, and insatiable reader. Irrepressible, joyful, and funny, she went on adventures around the world, hiking her way through the mountains and coastlines of France, learning how to cook in Italy, and soaking in the hot springs of Japan. Remembered by loving husband, Paul; son, Alex; daughter, Sophie; granddaughter, Tess; mother, Janice Morris; sister, Peggy Kronick; three brothers, Ted, Mike, and Mark; and many other relatives and friends. A private life celebration will be held on September 23. Memorial donations can be sent to Haiti Outreach.
